Institute on International Admissions and Guidance 2024

The strength of this institute is due to the vibrant partnership among the region’s counselors and university representatives as they collaborate on topical issues and together offer solutions to challenges faced in the region. We welcome, always, the help of counselors and university admissions professionals as we assemble a rich array of practitioner workshops for this annual event.

The EARCOS-CIS Institute will present a perfect opportunity for admissions officers from CIS member colleges and universities around the world to connect with guidance counselors from international schools throughout East Asia. Conference details and registration materials will be posted on the EARCOS and CIS websites and sent to all EARCOS and CIS members in mid-March. Some features of the conference include:

• Two days of professional development workshops with 40+ topics.
• Networking opportunities for university admission and guidance colleagues.
• University, School and Student fairs.
• Opportunities to develop successful, long-lasting collaborative relationships.

We invite you to submit a session proposal that will spark dialogue on international admissions and guidance as it relates to schools and students in Asia.
